Old Actress Mahnaz

It comes as no surprise that the gender of the people behind the camera often dictates who will be reflected onscreen. Films with at least one woman in a directing or writing role were more likely to feature women as protagonists and in major and speaking roles — 58% of films featuring a female director or screenwriter included a female protagonist compared with 30% of films written or directed by men. In addition to the work necessary for a particular role, Actors must always be preparing for their next job, as the nature of this profession is typically one of inconsistent work. Should an Actor gain a level of success or notoriety, they may also need to be present for promotional events and media tours to market their film or other project.
